Ultrasonic Cleanings

For the best oral care, it is suggested that your teeth are professionally cleaned every six months. This is especially true for those who are prone to plaque build-up. Regular cleanings keep your teeth and gums in good shape. At The Grove Family Dentistry, we use ultrasonic instruments with our dental care services for the best cleaning results.

Both manual and ultrasonic instruments are effective in removing the hard deposits of tartar that build up on teeth. Our ultrasonic devices allow the hygienist to do a more thorough job in less time. Ultrasonic scalers use high vibrational energy to work loose the deposits of tartar. Ultrasonic waves from the instrument disrupt the bacterial cells that cause the tartar to form and water flushes the area and acts as a coolant during the procedure. Most patients do not experience any discomfort with ultrasonic cleanings.

This type of cleaning is particularly helpful for patients experiencing gum disease. Ultrasonic scalers are able to reach further into the pockets around the teeth and get into the tiny spaces where bacteria hide. Healing is also promoted with the use of these instruments since bacteria are more efficiently flushed out of the affected areas.

Gum Treatment and Maintenance

Periodontitis or gum disease can be a serious problem. If left untreated it can cause other significant health issues in addition to destroying your oral health. Gum disease has been linked to such health problems as stroke, cardio vascular disease, type 2 diabetes and pregnancy problems. Proper treatment of gum disease is essential to achieve and maintain your general health.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, it is important to follow your treatment plan. A thorough cleaning will be part of the process and you may have to come in for regular cleanings every few months to keep problems at bay. Once the gum disease is controlled, it is important that you keep up with proper oral hygiene for healing and to maintain healthy gums.

General dental care and good oral hygiene certainly help considerably, however it is important to be aware of plaque buildup on your teeth and periodontal pockets which can lead to gum disease.
